"As a New York-based online collective with a 'by the people, for the people' mentality, VUU's aim is to provide an outlet for communication among both rising and established creative talent. The first issue of VUU (Winter/Spring 2011), which is now live, features work from 24 up-and-coming artists in a variety of mediums. Since its launch, VUU has been viewed by over 10,000 people in more than 20 countries, and has been called 'an extraordinary online magazine' featuring 'some of the most creative artists around the world,' by fashion designers I Love Factory. It is our hope that as the collective continues to grow and evolve, VUU will function as a sustainable outlet for this kind of widespread exposure and community support. As such, we are excited to get started on Issue 2 (Summer/Autumn 2011), and are seeking young talents to contribute!
"Current Vassar students, alumnae/i, prospective students, friends, enemies and neighbors, we invite you to submit. All mediums and backgrounds are welcome, and each selected artist will be spotlighted with an artist profile, an individual gallery of his or her work, and a permanent place in the VUU archive.
